Another Idiot Brake Checks A Semi And This Time Pays The Price

There are clips of people brake checking Tractor Trailers all over the internet. In fact, we’ve shown you an entire report on why it’s incredibly dangerous to do so. I don’t think people got the message.

This guy especially didn’t. This Norwegian motorist was driving a Mini Cooper next to the Semi on a two lane road. As you’ll see in the video, the right lane ended and the truck was forced to merge, presumably cutting off the Mini. There’s no way to verify this, but given the loud horn about 13 seconds into the video that conclusion is plausible. Then, out of nowhere, the Mini cuts around the truck, over a double yellow, in to oncoming traffic, cuts back in front of the Semi, and brake checks him.

What do you think happened next?

Why would you get out to confront the Semi driver? Are you that stupid? He’s driving a 50-ton truck. YOU get out of HIS way. You’re not more important than he is.

According to the description, the driving of the Mini was given fines of an undisclosed amount and his license was suspended for 11 months. Also, if you didn’t notice, the Mini got rear ended since the truck could not stop. You can hear the impact. Moron.

So people, once again I say to you: STOP BRAKE CHECKING SEMI-TRUCKS YOU FUCKING IDIOTS.
